Terry Craddock's last comments on poems and poets

  • POEM: Song Of Myself, I by Walt Whitman (4/18/2015 4:35:00 AM)

    'Leaves of Grass' would have been my choice, an inspired exceptional poem, 'Song Of Myself' is more an old friend and an introduction.

  • POEM: The Latest Decalogue by Arthur Hugh Clough (4/16/2015 8:50:00 PM)

    Some of the best satire I have ever read, beautifully written.

  • POEM: Our New Old House by Loyd C. Taylor, Sr. (4/16/2015 8:21:00 AM)

    Really enjoyed this poem, actually called two different chimney sweeps and finally one turned up with his wife yesterday, over a week late. The only major items remaining now are the gutters and 2 drainpipes to fix, Mike put the last ceiling insulation in a few days earlier at the back entrance to the house and the rest I can pleasantly do with ease. I scrubbed a green mould off a small garden shed, the house, especially one bad side by hand with a small brush, mould remover, then mild bleach, came up really well. Once the lawns and most gardens were reclaimed it became fun. I trimmed and cut back shrubs, ferns, a few trees, put in twenty mixed daffodils and ten tulips planted in one small garden section alone. Soon will hang painting and pictures that were stored from a house in Christchurch over 15 years ago.
    The house has good lighting placement, I put in energy saving bulbs in the most used locations, fixed the shower door and leaking taps. The house is becoming peaceful and restful, it was sad and neglected, a lot of the wood is rimu on skirting boards and doors, one kitchen wall; which I polished with beeswax and also solid oak chairs in the lounge, a friend Nathan and his wife Sonia gave us. They drove from Wakefield near Nelson just to drop off those chairs and kitchen table and chairs, stayed awhile then drove back home. These items of furniture had belonged to Nathan's grandmother who at 83 had recently passed. She and the family had wanted us to have them, furniture had not been in the budget, and amazingly the items really looked good in the house.
    Friendship and true friends can add finishing touches and help fill a home. Most of our house is filled with gifts given, both old still useful and new. We had already shampooed carpets before moving in, then sorted the kitchen first, and room by room arranged that which was needed. This house suits my personality, stone walls low on the fence boundaries, small established gardens with fern and a variety of small seasonal shrubs. And now a poem to hang on the house. Thanks Loyd. Smiling here.
